Abuja - The Military has restated its
commitment towards the rescue of the Chibok schoolgirls and other victims the
Boko Haram sect is holding captive.
Acting Director of Defence Information, Colonel Rabe
Abubakar, made the disclosure in responding to various reports on the plight of
Chibok Girls and other captives in the terrorists’ dens.
“The Nigerian military and other security agencies are
working round the clock to secure the release of not only the Chibok girls but
other innocent citizens who are held hostage by the terrorists,” he said.

“The military, being a component of the society, is
equally worried and is doing everything possible to address the current
security challenges. The search for abducted Chibok school girls and the rescue
of other Nigerian in hostage has never relapse as could be attested to in
recent times where hundreds of women and children were rescued by the military
through its coordinated operations,” Abubakar said.
The Defence Headquarters spokesman added that the
military would continue to sustain the operation until the entire North East
was cleared of all terrorists and miscreants, who kidnapped the schoolgirls in
Aril last year.
He denied recent media report on an escapee who alleged
pregnancy of most Chibok girls.
Abubakar urged the media to always verify their
information before going to the press.
“The DHQ is not unmindful of the media’s good intention
in this regards however, we wish to advise reporters and any other stakeholders
to be good partners in ensuring their safe rescue and successful termination of
terrorists campaign,” he said. – CAJ News
